Image 1 / 10

To kick off Space Week a one-off simulcast special premieres on Discovery Channel and Discovery Science. Scanning the Skies: The Discovery Channel Telescope focuses on the planning and construction of a state-of-the-art telescope by Discovery Networks. After a decade of construction, the telescope will amaze and fascinate with each new insight, uncovering the mysteries of what's beyond Neptune in our solar system, the Milky Way, small galaxies and other celestial objects. The special will feature interviews with astronomers about their mission to bring the discoveries from our solar system into every living room, classroom and social networking site. With its groundbreaking ease and speed to quickly navigate different parts of our solar system, the telescope represents a new dawn for science education and new ways to learn about our universe - what will they find?
